Si Woo Kim birdied five of his final eight holes Thursday for a 6-under 66 and the first-round lead at the Valero Texas Open.

Kim's already established and significant credentials on the PGA Tour include a victory at the 2017 Players Championship and while his most recent starts had not suggested a showing of this sort he opened with a round of 66 yesterday to lead by one and now has a considerable margin heading into the weekend.

Scott Brown, Jhonattan Vegas and Kyoung-Hoon Lee fill out the top five and sit tied for fourth place (11 under).

The South Korean world number 61 tossed his club aside and thrust both arms into the air in celebration at his second career hole-in-one on the PGA Tour.

"I thought it went in again", Conners said.

"The first days here", Kim said, "I've been feeling good". "I was just expecting the wind to hold it a bit better, and obviously it didn't".

After a 320 yard drive on the 567-yard par-5 14th, An chipped his third shot to 4 feet, which he rolled for one-putt birdie on the hole. He recovered from a three-putt bogey at the 15th with a pitch shot to inside three feet to set up birdie at No. 17. "That's why it was a pretty good back nine".

South Korea s Kim Si-woo fired a brilliant hole-in-one to surge into a four-shot lead at the Valero Texas Open in San Antonio on Friday.

"I've struck the ball really solidly and I was able to roll in a few putts today".

Matt Kuchar, already a two-time victor on the PGA Tour this season and coming off a runner-up finish last week, is at 3-under par following a round that included six birdies and three bogeys.

Conners, who is yet to win on the PGA Tour since turning professional in 2015, posted a third-round 66 to be within striking distance, while 2016 champion Charley Hoffman (64) is a stroke further back at 13 under.

He remained on track with a birdie at the 14th after getting up and down from a greenside bunker and, after holing a clutch 12-footer for par at the 15th, he notched another birdie at the par-three 16th where he almost took out the flag with his tee shot.

Fowler, at one stage tied for the lead, has also produced consecutive rounds of 68, with an eagle and five birdies checked by three bogeys of his own, two of those at the 15th and 16th.

"Flushed it", said the laid-back Californian.
